Today's guest, Zuyapa Jackson, is one of my dearest friends. This was the kind of conversation that originally inspired me to start this podcast four years ago, just chatting with a friend about things we care about deeply, like healing, spirituality, and truth--then thinking, "Damn! I bet other people would love to be flies on the wall for this!" So I hope you feel that way as you listen :)
Zuyapa's big truth was around deeply trusting herself. We also talked about how fine is never good enough and made some really great distinctions between surviving, living and thriving. We talked about how we're always cycling through the three and how we aren't meant to be static or dormant in any of them.
We got into what it's like to be a "knower", how we have to go deep into the dark places in order to heal, one main reason being to resolve our shame.
Zuyapa shared why she thinks we're constipated as a society and how we're not "digesting" everything that goes on in our lives, how important it is to have places to turn to be truthful, and why we have to purify our physical and energetic bodies to come back out ourselves.
She also left us with a beautiful invitation to pray - and shared how to use it as a way to commune with not only the divine, but yourself as well.
This was a really beautiful conversation. I could barely stop smiling throughout all of it - I hope you love it too, listen many times and share it with anyone you think would appreciate it.
